Background and Purpose:

With the vision of “Making Discoveries for Humanity and Society,” the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) was established in 2011 by the Korean government to advance essential sciences in Korea. Twenty-eight Research Centers have been launched and each Center has been yielding remarkable outcomes in different fields of research.

The IBS “Youthful Scientist Fellowship” started in 2016 to assume a dynamic part in cultivating cutting edge basic science pioneers. We trust this partnership offers chances to conduct independent research by using state-of-art infrastructure and to develop based on collaboration with leading researchers.

We trust that the YS Fellowship serves as a stepping stone for our research fellows to be appointed as independent principal investigators at illustrious institutions worldwide.
